Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer!

DTC C0561 71: System Disabled Information Stored Invalid Serial Data Received invalid serial data received
This code is always set when another trouble code is stored in the engine control module or transmission control module.
Some scan tools can not pull all of the fault codes that are stored in the ECM/TCM, they can only read codes that are related to the emissions system.
You will need to have your vehicle scanned with a high end scan tool that can communicate with all of the modules in the vehicle. I would check with your local auto parts store to see if they can scan it for free. I will need to know the other codes stored to give you more help about your concern.
What does the message display on the dash?
Is the ABS/ check engine light/ and Traction control light also on?
WE HAVE THE LATEST SNAP ON SCAN TOOL WILL IT PULL IT IT JUST SAYS STABILITY CONTROL IN MESSAGE CENTER PLUS THIS CODE THANKS
That should work just fine, Do you have the snap on Verus?
Can you communicate with all the modules?
There should be other codes stored other then c0561, scan all of the modules with your scan tool. Make sure when you go into ECM and TCM check the history codes if available.
NOT SURE WHICH ONE THINKING IT IS THE SOLUS
NOT SURE PRETTY SURE IT THE SOLUS
ok no problem, that should work just fine if it is updated to at least a 2008 vehicle. Can you go into Chevrolet and select a 2008 express van?
You will not be able to pull all the codes by using the generic scan tool function.
OK I WILL DO IT TOMORROW WHEN VAN GETS HERE OK WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR
Sounds good i will be back on tomorrow night.
You will need to find any codes stored in the ECM or TCM that could be related to the symptom.
Codes set in the ECM or TCM will set a c0561 in the abs module. After the ecm or tcm codes are fixed the C0561 message will clear and the traction control light will turn off.
OK WILL DO TY DEREK
OK MY SCANNER WONT LET US IN AGENT TOOK TO DEALER TO SEE WHATS WRONT OK TY
Thanks for the update, let me know what the codes are they find. Thanks!
